    Riding a Japanese bike in H-D City might be considered subversive to AMERICAN Values, eh ??

    It's not so bad, sure you don't get waves from the H-D crew, but that's ok. There are a decent amount of non-H-D bikes in the area. Occasionally even another VFR.

    I work near Miller Park so I am in and out of Milwaukee almost daily.

    I've been a hassled a few times. I had some HD rider give me a hand signal to slow down on a back road the other week. I'm pretty fed up with 'em.


    @stoops - I'm right off the corner of Hwy 100 and Greenfield Ave.

    pjvtec, My mother & my youngest brother live in your area.

    Down here in Indiana I get just the opposite reaction, I don't recall an H-D rider that hasn't given a wave or a peace sign as I am riding. But the majority of the Sportbike riders tend to act like their life would be cut short if they removed their left hand from the controls. :suspicious:

    I used to get most of the waves from sportbikes, but with the sidecases on now, it's a crap shoot who's going to wave.

    Cuz sportbikers are so uncommon in corn, pig, cow, and soybean middle America that anything BUT an H-D marks you as a suspious radical suspect of Commonism !

    BTW, in 25 years riding i've never seen an H-D rider flash a peace sign "V" !

    Anything anti-war , peacenik stuff would boot any H-D rider out out of the fraternity, woundnit ?

    H-D riders are a slightly sub-normal tribe, conformists while sportbikers think more for themselves....mostly, IMO.

    Maybe i'm an unwilling elitist too
    cuz i'd never wave at any scooterthing.

    That "V" flashed by harleydoods is not a peace sign. In harleydoodspeak it means I'd like to have sex with you and any farm animals you have.

    Waukesha county miniceptor rider here. I spoke with a guy riding a red 3rd gen in Wales a couple of weeks ago, but didn't ask if he was on this board.

    I am not from Milwaukee but close Kenosha. Once the weather warms up there is a Bike night here on Tuesdays at a coffee shop on the lake front called Harborside Common Grounds 5159 6th Ave · Kenosha good bunch of people.

    I used to live in Kenosha and walked by that bike night during the summer, I was usually walking to Captain Mike's for a burger and beer. Should have made it to one before I moved away.
